We traveled to Lefkosa by car and managed to find a free place near the Kyrenia gate entrance to the old walls. As you walk along this main route you will soon find yourself at the Bayuk Han as we did and found a bice corner for a rest and a drink. The upper level has some lovely small craft... More

This is a heavily touristed location, but it's a convenient place to pick up Turkish style souvenirs (or in my case, real apple tea). There's a restaurant that's a tad expensive but not bad.

This Khan is one of the oldest in Cyprus and originally was used as sleeping quarters for travelers and the stables for the horses. But now it has been restored and it has craft shops and a cafe. In the middle of the open square is a small mosque supported on marble pillars with steps up to the entrance. mosque

The Buyuk Han is a collection of small shops and cafes clustered around an old Han. The shops are quant with a lot of individual and unique products. Browsing was fine and you didn't feel pressurised by the owners. The cafes were good, we just had a couple of lemonade but the portions in the main cafe looked very generous.... More

This old ottoman hotel is deffinatly worth a visit. It's very picturesque and it's got a few nice local craft and gift shops located inside. It also had a few nice restaurants that sells traditional Turkish food.

A wonderful Karavansaray stumbled upon when looking to waste an hour waiting for a Government Office to open. Truly magnificent Ottoman architecture very reminiscent of the back streets of the Istanbul Grand Bazaar and other Kervansarays spead throughout Turkey, and especially Payas close to Dörtyol and Iskenderun.
